Default Old Spotter Photo

Just randomly found this. Likely taken by a passenger at a gate. United is still clearly painting airplanes into the 'Tulip' livery. Love photos like this.

From what I can find, N1832U, the DC-10 closest to the camera eventually became N397FE and was converted to a MD-10 and stored in 2015. It was delivered to United in 1975 and is line number 210. N443BN was delivered to Braniff in 1976, and flew for People Express, Continental, Pan Am, Delta, and US Airways Shuttle before being scrapped in 2002. The DC-8, N8011U, was a DC-8-50 line number 17 delivered to United in October 1959, named "Mainliner William B. Stout" and was stored at LAS in 1980 and was scrapped in 1993 after serving with TPI International.

This photo was taken in July 1976 at KDEN.
